Survey results: Survey results include information reported from CF clinics in Canada, and provide details – by discipline and acknowledged population size ranges – of what full-time equivalent complements of time are currently in place (Current) at each clinic, and what FTEs are realistically required (Optimal). For each discipline within each population size range, minimum, maximum, and mean FTE complements are displayed.

Guidelines from other jurisdictions: To offer international comparisons, links to guidelines from other countries are provided; however, with differences in national healthcare structures, medical facilities, availability of resources, etc., direct comparisons may not reflect the Canadian perspective, and in fact, certain staffing allocations appear extreme compared with Canadian counterparts.
